Refurbished 320GB PS3s for $200 at Sony Store

If you're unwilling to wade into the calm, inviting waters of the Day 1 console launch pool this year, the Sony Store is offering refurbished 320 GB PS3 Slims for $200. (PS3)

Not a bad deal.

Not bad at all. I'm seriously considering getting one. Thanks to PS+, my measly 120gb system is down to 6 gigs. It definitely wouldn't hurt to have another one, especially at that price.

Instead of buying a whole new Ps3, just upgrade the current ones HDD?
Reverent  +   668d ago
Because I'd really like to have one in both my living room, and my room.

indeed.
PS3+The Last of Us has never been this cheap.

it's crazy that 3-4months before PS4 comes out PS3 is still doing very well and huge blockbusters keep coming (GT6, Beyond, Tales of Xillia 2...)

This is the reason i'll get PS4, it's gonna benefit from the same treatment 4 months before PS5 comes out, same happened for both PS2 and PS1 it's a sony tradition

"Cheap Ass Gamer user timro33 posted about the sale on the site's message boards this afternoon. The deal is for the second-generation PS3, a model that doesn't offer the original build's compatibility with PS2 discs. It does, however, play physical PS1 and PS3 games, a technical feat that its imminent successor will not be capable of."

What? Slims do not have any kind of backwards compatibility.

All PS3s can play PS1 games just fine but those PS1 games must be the same region as the PS3 itself as PS1 games are region locked

You mean physical PS1 games?? Or digital?? If digital, my PS3 is european and plays PS1 games bought from USA store
Skate-AK  +   669d ago
Ohhh. Yep you're right. Never knew that and I am sure there are many more that don't.

All PS3s are also backward compatible with a small but expanding selection of PS2 games via the PS Store.
deafdani  +   668d ago
That's not backwards compatibility, dude.
RE_L_MAYER  +   669d ago
nice....need to get one so I can still play ps3 games without worrying it might break while using ps4

If u open sony credit card, the ps3 becomes $99
SonyPS4  +   669d ago
How many people are going to sign up credit cards for a game system? To most people it's still 200. Not that it's a bad price.
kreate  +   668d ago
I unserstand.
But $200 is too much for a refurbished even though it comes w the same warranty as new.

This deal is worth it for $99 if u don't mind opening a credit card than later cancel the credit card if u don't want one.

kind of pricey for a used PS3. I'd rather pay $50 for a new one....
dcj0524  +   669d ago
Lol. Maybe you can get a psp go for that proce. Not a ps3.
deafdani  +   668d ago
I'd rather pay $50 for a new Lamborghini.

If you're planning on getting gta 5 just wait a couple months and buy the bundle. The 70 dollar difference gets you gta 5 and an extra 180 gigs in hard drive space.
